Hurricane Sandy Update: NY, DC, Baltimore, & Philadelphia Under Warning
VIBE's headquarters in NYC is set to take on Hurricane Sandy today, so make sure you're well informed & prepared for any impending power outages.
"Sandy strengthened before dawn and stayed on a predicted path toward Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York – putting it on a collision course with two other weather systems that would create a superstorm with the potential for havoc over 800 miles from the East Coast to the Great Lakes. About 2 to 3 feet of snow were even forecast for mountainous parts of West Virginia."
Here's a few updates for you guys:
—Subways, buses and trains shut down across the region under the threat of flooding that could inundate tracks and tunnels.
—Airports are closed
—The worst of the East Coast surge could be in the northern part of New Jersey, New York City, and on Long Island.
—NYC schools are shut down today (Monday).
—Early voting was canceled Monday in Maryland and the District of Columbia due to the storm.
—As of 5 a.m. today (Monday), Sandy was centered about 385 miles south-southeast of New York City, moving to the north at 15 mph, with hurricane-force winds extending an unusual 175 miles from its center.
